Exciting Features: 2018 Terrain vs 2018 Highlander 2018 Toyota Highlander

Frankly, the 2018 GMC Terrain kills it in terms of performance, connectivity, and safety features.

  • Traction Select System: This available technology allows you to choose between FWD, AWD, Off-Road, and an available Tow/Haul mode at the touch of a button. Perfect for exploring!
  • 8” Diagonal GMC Infotainment System: When it comes to staying connected with calls, music, maps, messages, podcasts, audiobooks, etc., you couldn’t ask for anything more.
  • Forward Collision Alert: Because your family, your friends, and yourself are that important.

But the 2018 Toyota Highlander is equally impressive in these three categories, as well. Check it out!

  • Dynamic Torque-Control All-Wheel Drive: By intelligently managing the distribution of engine power across the front and rear wheels, this available AWD system is one of the best in the biz.
  • Entune™ Multimedia Bundle: 8-Inch High-Resolution Touch-Screen Display, an Integrated Nav suite, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio compatibility
  • Star Safety System™: Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), etc.


Interior: Passengers, Head Room, Leg Room, Cargo, and More GMC Terrain

The Terrain gives you seating for up to 5 people, with 40 inches of front headroom, 38.5 inches of rear headroom, 40.9 inches of front legroom, and 39.7 inches of rear legroom for each. Plus, with over 63 cubic feet of available cargo space, when you collapse all the rear seats, you can carry all that gear, too.

The Highlander bumps that seating capacity up to 7, with 39.8 inches of front headroom, 44.2 inches of front legroom, 37.8 inches of rear headroom, and 38.4 inches of rear legroom. Then, when it comes to cargo capacity, they’re also generous with as much as 83.2 cubic feet with all the seats stowed.

In other words, both vehicles are awesome, it just depends on what you need and what you want.

As you can see, both the 2018 GMC Terrain and the 2018 Toyota Highlander are incredible vehicles. The Terrain is probably ideal for families who want to save a bit of money (but don’t mind a limited seating capacity), while the Highlander is better for those who are comfortable starting at a higher price point (and who need to cart around up to seven people). Either way, with either one, you’re really winning.
